Join Justine Sanderson and Jay Robinson for this 90 minute Sound Bath featuring Didgeridoo, Sitar, Gongs, Shruti Box and Crystal Singing Bowls. A gentle yet powerful experience for the mind and body. Each Didgeridoo Sitar Sound Bath is a one of a kind and inspiring opportunity for personal growth, reflection and calmness as your whole being is immersed in sound and bathed with vibrations.
When we surrender with acceptance and a true sense of openness to the tones and the present moment, sound has a very powerful effect on our consciousness. It can transform us and it can heal. It can bring balance, relaxation and a sense of wholeness to the body. The sound of the harmonic vibrations created by the Didgeridoo, Singing Bowls, Gongs and other sacred overtone-emitting instruments help to stimulate our alpha and theta brain waves. These waves are associated with deep meditative and peaceful states that are highly conducive to healing.
Didgeridoo Sitar Sound Baths begin with each person lying down comfortably. After a few moments of guided focus on the breath and group unifying sounds, the remainder of the experience is filled with different sounds and frequencies being introduced and resonated through many unique instruments and tones played with intention, love and compassion.
Price: $35 for non-members, $24.50 for monthly members
Prepare yourself for deep relaxation as Lisa guides you through a restorative practice while Marta plays the soothing cello and sarangi. This special 90 minute class will include 5-6 poses and short yoga nidra with savasana. Pure bliss.
A restorative yoga sequence typically involves only five or six poses, supported by props that allow you to completely relax and rest. Held for 5 minutes or more, restorative poses include light twists, seated forward folds, and gentle backbends. Most restorative practices are based on the teachings of B.K.S. Iyengar.
Restorative yoga helps to combat the physical and mental effects of everyday stress, and eases common ailments such as headaches, backaches, anxiety, and insomnia with the use of restful poses and deep breathing techniques.
